Is There A Part 2 To Tokyo Revengers

Japanese students meeting outdoorsThe Tokyo Revengers Season 2 release date is in January 2023, the Winter 2023 anime season. The second season is officially titled Tokyo Revengers: Seiya Kessen in Japanese. According to BD/DVD distributor Pony Canyon, the anime sequel will be officially titled in English as Tokyo Revengers: Christmas Showdown. The announcement of the 2023 premiere time frame was made by a new key visual and the second Tokyo Revengers Season 2 teaser trailer. Presumably, the title Tokyo Revengers: Christmas Showdown is a reference to the manga series' Black Dragon story arc since the plot takes place near Christmas. The Christmas Showdown arc is about the same length as the Valhalla arc so it's very likely that Tokyo Revengers Season 2 will be a single cour anime season. What's a "cour," you might ask? For those unfamiliar with the lingo, a "cour" is a three-month block of TV broadcasting based on the physical seasons usually composed of 10 to 13 episodes. December 18, 2021.

Back in May 2021, a different leaker claimed Tokyo Reveners 2 was already in early development. It was easy to believe such leaks at the time since the manga had beaten records and the anime itself has done well. A special teaser video trailer was released to celebrate the production decision. Even before the Christmas Showdown arc had been officially announced, the Tokyo Revengers Season 2 anime had been indirectly confirmed by the talent management office of voice actor Tatsuhisa Suzuki, who previously voiced Draken in the first season. The voice actor had previously announced his hiatus from all entertainment industry events after he and his wife, LiSA, began experiencing poor health following the July 2021 allegations that Suzuki had an affair with a female coworker. Suzuki was hospitalized after the scandal went public, but LiSA reportedly went to the hospital and forgave him. In response, Suzuki's talent management office indirectly confirmed to Yahoo News Japan that Tokyo Revengers Season 2 is already in production. "The production of the second season of the anime has already started, and an announcement is scheduled to be made by the end of this year," the reps stated on December 12, 2021.

Suzuki is also the vocalist for the band OLDCODEX.

However, on December 26, 2021, the official website announced that Suzuki "will be replaced after discussions between the office and the committee. The voice actor had previously stepped from his role as Ultraman Taro in Netflix's Ultraman Season 2 anime TV series that is coming out in 2022. In early December 2021, Suzuki dropped out from the lead role of Anos Voldigoad in The Misfit of Demon King Academy Season 2. Suzuki also plays characters in the upcoming anime sequels the My Next Life as a Villainess movie, and the Free! The Final Stroke movie. Suzuki is also the vocalist for the band OLDCODEX. On December 26, 2021, OLDCODEX announced that the unit was disbanding after 12 years. Their last performance was the theme song for the Free! The studio and main staff for Tokyo Revengers Season 2 hasn't been officially announced yet. However, the main staff is reportedly remaining the same.

CODE BLACK and Build Divide: Code Black (surprisingly, Build Divide: Code Black Season 2 was announced ahead of the first season's premiere). The first season was helmed by director Koichi Hatsumi (Blue Exorcist, Dororo, Deadman Wonderland). Writer Yasuyuki Mutou (Afro Samurai, Deadman Wonderland, various Mobile Suit Gundam anime) wrote the series composition. Artist Kenichi Ohnuki (Golden Kamuy, Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, Mobile Suit Gundam, My Hero Academia) is the character designer. Composer Hiroaki Tsutsumi (Ahiru no Sora, Devil May Cry, Dr. The animated short episodes, Chibi Revenger, featured characters in their everyday lives.

For the first season, the Tokyo Revengers OP was "Cry Baby" as performed by Official Hige Dandism, while the ED was "Koko de Iki o Shite" by eill.

The Tokyo Revengers Part 2 OP did not change. The 2nd cour switched to the "Tokyo Wonder" ED by Nakimushi. The Tokyo Revengers Season 2 release date may be on the horizon, but at least the Tokyo Revengers Part 2 episodes completed another story arc in 2021. The Tokyo Revengers Blu-Ray/DVD box sets are being released in six volumes. Initially, the total number of episodes wasn't shown, but by September 2021 it was revealed that the first season had 24 episodes in total with two cours.

As such, this article will be updated over time with news, rumors, and analysis. Meanwhile, let's delve down into what is known for certain. The first season of Tokyo Revengers was streaming on Crunchyroll, VRV, Amazon Prime Video (not in the USA), and Netflix Japan (not Netflix US) with English subtitles. The Tokyo Revengers dub will also include Spanish, Portuguese, French, and German dubs. As of the last update, Kodansha, Studio LIDEN FILMS, or any company related to the production of the anime has not officially confirmed the exact Tokyo Revengers Season 2 release date. However, the production of a Tokyo Revengers: Christmas Showdown sequel has been officially confirmed.

The June 2022 trailer revealed that the second season is coming out in Winter 2023, which is what Anime Geek predicted. Once the news is officially confirmed this article will be updated with the relevant information. The fact that no official announcement was made when Episode 24 was released is almost as equally shocking as the cliffhanger ending. But there were plenty of reasons early on to believe the sequel was coming. On May 18, 2021, anime news leaker ChifuyuMatsun0 claimed, "A second season of Tokyo Revengers is already in development. No leaked images or any form of source verification was provided, but even back then it was a reasonable claim considering the recent timing of the manga sales reports. The anime sequel announcement wasn't a surprise since the popularity of the Tokyo Reveners manga has exploded thanks to the anime. Back in March 2021, there were around 8.5 million copies of the manga in circulation. A month later, in April 2021, the series skyrocketed to 14.5 million copies. The Tokyo Revengers manga dominated the Oricon sales chart in May 2021, selling 2,702,408 copies in total. By May 7, 2021, the manga reached 15 million copies, and then a week later, it was up to 17 million copies, according to the official Twitter account. On June 3, 2021, the official account celebrated reaching 20 million copies in circulation. A month later the official Toman account celebrated reaching 25 million copies. On July 21, 2021, the landmark of 32 million copies was celebrated.3200万部突破!

Half a year later, the manga added 15 million copies to reach 65 million copies in circulation.

By mid-August 2021, the Tokyo Reveners manga officially became the best-selling Kodansha manga within a one-year period by selling 16,532,610 copies, beating out Attack on Titan's record of 15,933,801 that was set in 2013! By September 26, 2021, the manga has 40 million copies in circulation. Since there were about 5 million copies in circulation back in September 2020, that means the series has increased the number of copies in circulation by eight times in a single year. By January 20, 2022, the manga has topped 50 million copies. Half a year later, the manga added 15 million copies to reach 65 million copies in circulation. Additionally, the official Twitter account revealed that 7 million copies were purchased by overseas manga readers. Besides that incredible achievement, there were other reasons at the time to believe that the producers had Tokyo Reveners renewed so quickly. Tokyo Revengers reviews have been overly positive even from the beginning. There was potential bias since the scores were higher than average even when the first several episodes were released, but that's largely due to manga readers knowing what to expect from the strength of the manga's story. When it comes to bad news, the Tokyo Revengers Blu-Ray sales in Japan were good but not great. According to the Oricon chart, the first BD volume sold 2,942 copies in its first week.

The Volume 2 BD did better, selling 3,616 in its first week. To put the number in perspective, in the same time frame Attack On Titan: The Final Season Volume 1 sold 3,108 copies in its first week. More importantly, the anime's episodes often made it to the Top 10 of Crunchyroll's popular anime list. Streaming revenue is the biggest factor to success, and the Tokyo Reveners anime was often next to Attack On Titan, My Hero Academia, and Jujutsu Kaisen on the list. Now that it's confirmed that the anime production committee had Tokyo Reveners renewed, the only question is studio availability since anime productions are scheduled out years in advance. Studio LIDEN FILMS' schedule is packed. In 2021 the company animated 9 anime TV series. As of March 2022, the studio has already been confirmed for 7 anime projects releasing in 2022, including Netflix's Bastard! The elephant in the room is the possibility of a studio change. Besides the animation quality issue, the anime production committee might be hoping to strike quickly while the anime is hot so it's possible the task could switch hands for a quicker turnaround.

Keep in mind that the main staff are contractors who jump from studio to studio for projects so even if there is a Tokyo Reveners studio change it's possible certain people will return. For example, in the last 10 years Director Kouichi Hatsumi has worked with Manglobe (Deadman Wonderland), Production IG A-1 Pictures (Blue Exorcist Season 2), and MAPPA (Dororo). In any case, there was also a false rumor regarding the Tokyo Revengers: Christmas Showdown release date that came out in late 2021. According to a self-described "well-known anime blogger" on Chinese Weibo, the Tokyo Reveners Season 2 release date was supposed to be on July 3, 2022 (after midnight on July 2, 2022), the Summer 2022 anime season. Obviously, this information was never verified through official sources and we advocated that it be taken with a huge grain of salt as a rumor. Many of the biggest anime news leaks came out of China, so the rumors couldn't be completely discounted out of hand, but as time passed this rumor became more and more unlikely since the release time frame for any major anime project is typically announced within 6 months of the actual premiere. Instead, Anime Geek predicted a 2023 release time frame was more likely. Since the production was officially announced on December 18, 2021, it was predicted the second season could come out in 2023, which turned out to be correct.
